From what I heard, this was the first time FGCU was ever in the tournament, in only their second year of postseason eligibility, and sixth year with a basketball program.

They were talking about one of the low seeds, maybe it was the team playing Florida, as having beaten Iowa as a 14 seed in the past.

Before this year's comp just six #15 seeds had won a Madness game. Florida Gulf Coast became number seven when they beat Georgetown. No one was brave enough to pick the win .. ditto the upset win by #14 La Salle over #4 Kansas State.

BxBarracuda is our new leader .. he has not won this comp before. N-Bomb in second place and Howie72 in third are prior winners.

Six games were picked by everyone .. which means we all had identical picks for 8 of the 16 games. Just three of us kept their position from Day 1 .. two of the three tail enders plus szabs in 7th. The loss by Georgetown knocked the stuffing out of a few of us.
  • 5 of 15 players have now lost a Final Four pick.
  • four players have now lost a finalist.
  • the two tail-enders have now lost their winner.
That's 32 gone and 31 left; and no-one has a complete set of 31 live ones .. ozzz2002 is still best with 28 alive and kicking. BxBarracuda is the only player with an mpt >300 pts (aka all his remaining picks bear fruit).

Georgetown became the first team to lose their first tournament game to a team with a 5+ seed differential in four consecutive tournaments.

All these big seeds are going out, in some ways it's good becuase I have teams like Gonzaga and Georgetown going out in the elite eight, while some have them making the final, but even still, going out in the 32 is a bit too early for my liking!

I'm gonna need a good (but not too good...) run from Miami and Michigan too get close to the leaderboard, it's feeling a lot like 2011 when I jumped out to an early lead and then watched as everyone's brackets (including mine) fell apart! Bx might be hard to beat.

She's been doing this comp for quite some time. She did get involved in others off and on. I don't know a name other than "Sarah" for her.

Yet another two upsets, and one player has no now lost his winner and the losing finalist (aka NL)

BxBarracuda is starting to run away with this, and we're only at Day 3. One more day and the three tail-enders will have an mpt which is less than the leader's; and these three blokes will be officially/mathematically out of the running.

Sarah606 jumps up into second and we now have the two out front who have never won this comp. If Sarah606 collects her mpt she will win this as her picks and the leader's picks are different .. ditto ozzz2002. Sarah606 won the silver medal in the 2004 MM comp .. ozzz2002 has never won a medal in this comp.

The only prior winner in the first six is N-Bomb, who's in 3rd place .. but if all his Final Four picks, plus his winner and loser, came home he can't win this as BxBarracuda will also get maximum points from the last seven games. N-Bomb needs BxBarracuda to get all of the other four picks in the Elite Eight wrong, plus a few tomorrow on Day 4.

It's early days yet, but it starting to look like the 12th edition of this Madness comp will produce its 12th different winner.

Did anyone have a 15 to make the Sweet 16? I rather doubt it, but the inevitable has happened!

Illinois just got shafted by the refs.

@ identical final four picks (there are none this year).
* this team has been eliminated.
the National Final is East/South vs. Mid-West/West



Day 4 saw two games picked by everyone and two games picked by no-one, aka we all had identical picks for half the games.

BxBarracuda collected the wooden spoon for this round and has fallen back to the rest of the field. There are 15 games left and Howie72 has 14 live ones left!

The three tail-enders retire to the gallery to watch the remainder of the comp. None of us can catch BxBarracuda even if every single one of our remaining live picks are correct (highlighted in green in the standings).

All of our picks for the remaining 15 games (live and dead) are set out above and below .. the winners of the 8 games in the next round (3rd Round) progress as the Elite Eight, the winners of the four games in the 4th Round are the Final Four .. and the winners of the two semi-finals (5th Round) and the final (6th Round) are in the last two columns of the Standings table.

You can now work out which picks BxBarracuda and/or the other two podium spots need to drop for you to catch him, or jump up onto the podium! With 15 games left, there are heaps of combinations and permutations remaining.

I said upthread that my goal was not to be eliminated after the first weekend. Looks like I succeeded...barely.

The full gory details, and the 8 people left alive (assuming I didn't screw up the spreadsheet somewhere, which may be a big assumption...)
Click to reveal..

Although there are 15 games left, one of them (Wichita St. vs. La Salle) is irrelevant since nobody picked either of them to do anything. The remaining 14 games give rise to 16,384 scenarios, including 333 (2.03%) that end in a tie. Splitting ties equally among the tied people (in actuality there's a tiebreaker), I have

-10,467.5 scenarios (63.89%) in which BxBarracuda holds his lead.
-4,519 scenarios (27.58%) in which Sarah606 wins
-706.5 scenarios (4.31%) in which Srini701 wins
-530.5 scenarios (3.24%) in which ozzz2002 wins
-104.5 scenarios (0.64%) in which dg_dave wins
-48 scenarios (0.29%) in which szabs wins
-6 scenarios (0.04%) in which illiniman14 wins
-2 scenarios (0.01%) in which kevinatilusa wins.

All I need is for Indiana, Miami, Louisville, Michigan St., Ohio St., and Kansas to win next round, then Miami, Kansas, Louisville, and Ohio St. to make the Final Four, then Kansas and Louisville to make the finals, then Louisville to win in the finals, and I WIN!!

With 63 total games, you have 32 correct at this juncture...that's just over 50%, srini, even if you don't get one more right.

once again, thanks for that. Nice work! At the same stage last year (end of
R2, before today's games) there were only 5 people still in it with a show:
    themonarch: 42.91%
    George95: 32.65%
    srini701: 16.49%
    illiniman14: 4.21%
    Howie72: 2.99%
    jonnowales: 0.74%
Last year's comp was won by George95 .. BxBarracuda too silver and Howie72 the bronze.

@ identical final four picks (there are none this year).
* this team has been eliminated.
the National Final is East/South vs. Mid-West/West



Day 5 saw five wooden spoons with 0/4 and three winners with 2/4. One of those five spoons one was collected by BxBarracuda who, depsite back-to-back spoons, retains the lead.

There was no change in the first three. N-Bomb in fourth place joins the three tail-enders in the gallery .. his mpt isn't enough to catch BxBarracuda.
  • there are 11 games left and three players have 10 live ones! LeoDaVinci way back in 12th place, dg_dave in 9th and ozzz2002 in 5th.
  • on top of that, dg_dave and ozzz2002 have a complete set of four live picks for the Final Four.
  • three players have a complete set of four live picks for the remaining four games in the 3rd Round: Howie72, LeoDaVinci and srini701.
With that scenario, it look like the winner of this Madness won't be known until Monday 8th April at the Georgia Dome.

I was waiting for that to happen :-/. Just FYI, you mean toocool4u is gone, I'm technically still alive but as it has been pointed out I have no chance of winning, just a good shot at a podium place.

Of course, we haven't seen half the action yet, still more madness to come!

@ identical final four picks (there are none this year).
* this team has been eliminated.
the National Final is East/South vs. Mid-West/West



We all collected a truckload of pts on Day 6 .. LeoDaVinci picked the card!

The loss by #1 Kansas to #4 Michigan knocked the stuffing out of a few of us. We now have eight players who can't catch BxBarracuda. Howie72 makes it nine .. his one pt differential will evaporate tomorrow.

That leaves us with six players still in the running with seven games left .. dg_dave and ozzz2002 still have live picks for every game!

@ identical final four picks (there are none this year).
* this team has been eliminated.
the National Final is East/South vs. Mid-West/West



Four of the Elite Eight played and two of the Final Four spots have been filled .. and we all collected a truckload of zeroes. Between us we had 30 picks for Day 7 .. and ozzz2002 was the only person to score a point!

The loss by #2 Ohio State to #9 Wichita knocked out a truckload of live picks .. we now have 10 players who can't catch BxBarracuda. If I've done this correctly, this is what should happen over the last five games if the remaining four, who can catch BxBarracuda, collect their mpt:
               mpt BxB
    Sarah606   236 230
    N-Bomb     235 249
    ozzz2002   225 230
    LeoDaVinci 221 224
LeoDaVinci is the only player left with a complete set of live picks for every game .. but he will fall 3 pts short if they all come home. This comp looks like it will be a straight turkey-shoot between BxBarracuda and Sarah606, who can win this on the last day if Louisville make the final *and* win it.

There are too man permutations and combinations to work out if these forecasts change if no-one collects their mpt .. ditto trying to workout who collects silver and bronze behind the winner. It will be easier after the next two games are played, as there will be only eight possible combinations left; and each of those 8 can be applied to the reaming five players who are still in this.
